Firefox is now DRM Enabled Post Update 38

The latest update from Mozllia Firefox –Update 38 gives browsers access to multimedia content offered by protected media providers such as NetFlix, Hulu, Amazon etc. This allows users to go with-or disable the Adobe’s CDM (Content Decryption Module) which would be the basis of content provided by these providers. The DRM is enabled by default and activated when the browser is first run after the update. Mozilla has also made security sandbox around the DRM environment as an added security feature to the browser and the device while DRM is being used-apart from patching 15 security vulnerabilities in this update. It is seen as a move to slowly move browsers from requiring the support of third-party add-ons such as Silverlight and Flash to play media. It now joins Chrome, Safari and IE in supporting DRM locked digital content-apart from making it optional for the user. This facaility is currently only available for bit browsers running on 32 bit environments.
